Abstract

In this thesis a theory - the theory of dispositions is presented. The theory treats relationships between parameters of a product and the parameters of the systems which are realising the product and which the product meets during its life. When the theory is used during design the designer tries to foresee parameter relationships and choose the parameters of the product which optimize the conditions during production and product life.
In the project the actual parameters and relationships are identified. The relationships are treated on four levels: the range, concept, structure and component levels. The so-called universal virtues: costs, through-put-time, quality, efficiency, flexibility, risk, and environmental effects are used for measures for the optimum results of a disposition.
The theoretical result of the project is the formulation of the theory of dispositions which points out relationships between the parameters of the product and the product life and the related rationalization effects. Important conceptual models are the score model and the model of a dispositional mechanism which describe an important type of integration between the various functional departments of a company.
The practical results of the project include: the formulation of a conceptual framework for the designer to use when working with optimization and control of total life conditions. Finally, the conceptual framework can be used in the creation and strengthening of methods for Design for X such as: Design for Cost, Quality, Service or Environment.

Resume
I denne afbandling opstilles en teori - disponeringsteorien - for sammenhćmgen mellem parametrene i et produkt og parametrene i de systemer, som skal realisere produktet og som produktet møder senere i sit liv. Konstruktiv anvendelse af disponeringsteorien betyder, at produktudvikleren prøver at forudse parametersammenhćmge og vćlger de produktparametre, som giver optimale produktionsforhold og produktlivsforhold. Med andre ord: Produktudvikleren skal disponere rigtigt.
I projektet identificeres de aktuelle parametre og deres sammenhćnge, som behandles på fire forskellige niveauer: Produktsortiments-, koncept-, struktur- og komponentniveau. Til måting af det optimale disponeringsresultat anvendes de såkaldte universaldyder: Omkostninger, gennemløbstid, kvalitet, effektivitet, fleksibilitet, risiko og miljøeffekter.
Projektets teoretiske resultat er formuleringen af disponeringsteorien, der påpeger sammenhćngen mellem produktog produktlivsparametre og de dertil hørende rationali-seringseffekter. Vigtige begrebsdannende modeller er partiturmodellen og modellen af en disponeringsmekanisme, der be-skriver en vigtig type integration mellem en virksomheds funktioner.
Projekteta praktiske resultat omfatter formulering af et begrebs-og tankemønster, hvormed produktudvikleren kan arbejde med produktlivsoptimering, modeller til at holde styr på produktlivsoptimering. Endelig er der opstillet et metodeapparat til skabelse af og styrkeIse af metoder for X-rigtig konstruktion, f.eks. omkoetningsrigtig, kvalitetsrigtig, servicerigtig og miljørigtig konstruktion.
